Madagascar: Five million dollars generated by AGOA since the beginning of 2015

The Malagasy exports through AGOA - allowing for exemption of customs duties for the products of the Malagasy textile industries towards the United States - have attracted in their wake approximately 5 million dollars in four months, as reported by the Minister Industry.
Thus, around 25,000 new jobs have been created since the beginning of 2015 in Madagascar.
As a reminder, the Malagasy authorities expect the creation of approximately 200,000 jobs in the country over five years. The Island has officially reintegrated in June 2014 the African Growth and Opportunity Act.
